Roasted Parmesan Courgettes

This is a delicious way to prepare courgettes for dinner! My Roasted Parmesan Courgettes are simple to prepare and succulent to eat.

You might have seen this photo on my Instagram account last week, It’s my first ever home grown round courgette grown in my little garden in Wimbledon. My dad bought the baby plant which was planted in our little veg patch in May and has thrived ever since. I haven’t seen round courgettes before and was pretty convinced they wouldn’t grow however I was wrong.

They have grown like crazy! This was the first harvested on but there are 9 more growing and I hope they all reach this crazy size. This one courgette was enough for 6 of us as part of a roast dinner this week. I asked about on social media to know to get the best out of this courgette when cooking. Among the suggestions I had was to try adding parmesan and roasting would be amazing and oh it was!

I love my little veg patch. It’s only 3m long x 50cm deep but most years it does produce a lot. Usually I just plant tomatoes and maybe some potatoes but this year I decided to try planting lots and hope that some would grow. This year I’m growing tomatoes, courgettes, carrots, beetroot and hopefully the Brussels sprouts and broccoli might yield some veg. I bought some stand alone potato bags for the reason that the roots wouldn’t disrupt the main veg patch. As a result so far I’ve had 3kgs of potatoes from 3 potato bags and happy tummies at dinner time.

  • Courgettes 1 large round or 3 normal courgettes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil You can use vegetable oil instead
  • Parmesan


  • Slice the courgettes. I sliced them just shy of a 1cm. Be careful when cutting them as they can roll.
  • Lay them on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt - a good pinch per slice. This will help draw out the moisture before cooking.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and leave for about 30 minutes to an hour for the moisture to be bought out.
  • After it's resting time pour any water away.
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC
  • Freshly grate pamesan on to the courgette and drizzle a little more oil
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes until it starts to go golden brown.

Look how gorgeous the courgette looks when it has just come out of the oven. The cheese has melted into the courgette and has a caught a little to give crispy bits which were everyone’s favourite.

Can anyone grate Parmesan without eating a little bit as you go? It’s looking with wine you always have a little bit as you go. Or is that just me?
